the physical and mental of allergies.

I woke up this morning around 7:30 because i couldn't breathe that well.

i took two hits of my inhaler, and it didn't help, which sucked a lot. I tried to ignore it and go back to sleep, but eventually i said, "fuck it" and got up.

I started the process of getting a Ricola zinc lozenge to dissolve in my mouth and started stepmania without really thinking about it. I played my two most recent charts and then realized that I didn't have an objective opinion about them. so i mentally shrugged and spent the next hour making steps for the tune i edited last night. I'm pretty happy with them.

At some point yesterday, Tyler mentioned something about how he thought that allergies and asthma had this element of psychology to them... how we're both so allergy ridden in general, but when we're occupied with other things (yesterday's example was playing DDR), the allergies decide to take a back seat.

There must be something to that, because the whole time i was writing my newest step chart, i only noticed my wheezing once. Now that it's over, i'm noticing it a lot more often. It's not nearly as bad as when i woke up, but it's definitely closer on the radar.

There's a big analogy i can draw about that as it relates to mentality and moods, but i've done it twice already - once in this journal somewhere and once in my private journal. I'm too tired to dredge that up right now. I think instead i'm going to do some vague internetting and then try to go back to sleep.

hehe. yeah, naima is awesome. she's one of those friends that crosses both of my worlds of DDR friends and Music friends a lot.

hanging out would be fun, man. give me a bit of time to not feel like shit, and we'll definitely find something to do in this sleepy town. :)
